Captain Midnight Vol 6: Marked for Death Review

I’ve been a fan of some of the various reboot/re-releases of some older properties, and for my money, the revised and recreated Captain Midnight has been landing very well. The real question: is it good?

“This is your Captain speaking, everything is kind of on fire…”

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Vol 6. is pretty intense. This is incredibly tightly plotted superhero stuffs, with computer hacking, arm weapons, stealth suits, and X pulling this move to some poor schmoe:

Is It Good?

Overall I like this series and this collection. It’s gory, so fair warning for the squeamish out there, but if you’ve been following the adventures of our fair Captain, this is a good addition.

If you’ve NOT been following, jumping in at this point will leave you scratching your head quite a bit. I’ve not been religiously reading the series, but I had quite a bit in my brain when jumping in.

Like I said above, the plot and story in these issues is great. Dialog like this is kind of my thing:

“Oh right…the shark thing. You’re still mad about that?”

I say give this one a whirl, and check out the back issues. It’s a modern take on supes, and the collateral damage they cause, so fits right into our hipster age.
